This program focuses on the historical and applied aspects of microbiology and molecular biology. Linking all aspects of the program is a readings and seminar series; speakers will be renowned professors from Cambridge University, University College London, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Imperial College, the Pasteur Institute, and Delft University of Technology. Students will visit London, Cambridge, Nottingham, Amsterdam, Delft, Paris, Dijon, and Geneva as part of the study abroad. Visits to museums will be highlighted with presentations outside the general public, including disease diagnosis using London plague pit skeletons, Fleming’s lab where penicillin was discovered, Pasteur’s laboratory and crypt, and microscopes made by van Leeuwenhoek and Darwin. We will make bread at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and Gouda cheese in Gouda (and eat them, too!). The program ends in Geneva at the World Health Organization. This program is most appealing to students that are passionate about microbiology and molecular biology, who are interested in medicine and in how these disciplines are applied and used in daily living.
